Tagetes lemmonii

Tagetes, Lemon Marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy
Family: Asteraceae
Origin: Mexico
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Lemon marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy - usually a small shrub that can be trimmed to a groundcover level, this plant can reach up a few feet if you let it go. It has very aromatic, airy foliage and vibrant yellow daisy-like blooms.

A strong fragrance from the finely divided foliage is released when rubbed or brushed against. Orange-yellow flowers in fall-winter with off bloom in other seasons - flowering is triggered by short day length so overcast weather can extend flowering in spring. Plant in sun or part shade in well-drained soil. Drought tolerant in coastal gardens but looks best with a little irrigation - too much water or too little light produces leggy plants that don't bloom well. One of the best butterfly attractors!

The triploid marigolds are sterile hybrids obtained by crossing the Tagetes patulawith the Tagetes erecta. Common but colorful, inexpensive and easy to germinate and grow, there are varieties available in a wide range of heights, hues and flower forms.

Plant marigolds in the vegetable garden where they are said to discourage certain insect pests.

Tamarix sp.

Tamarisk, Athel tree, Salt Cedar
Family: Tamaricaceae
Origin: Europe, Africa, China and Japan
Large shrub 5-10 ftBig tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Salt cedar is a deciduous shrub/small tree that grows most successfully along riparian zones , that is, along streams and/or lake edges. Its roots extend deeply into the soil and depend on ground water for water supply. Saltcedar's high water consumption further stresses native vegetation by lowering ground water levels and can also dry up springs and marshy areas.

Tambourissa quadrifida is a striking tree, with cauliflorus flowers coming straight out of the trunk. The male flowers look like small red starfish covered in white paint marks. The female flowers look like a small wooden bell that takes the form of a small pot when it turns into a fruit. The fruit gives the tree its common name of "monkey's chamber pot" (pot sam zacot). When ripe the walls of the chamber pot open disgorging black seeds covered in bright orange flesh.
